12 September 2009

Yesterday was a lovely warm, sunny September day to visit the seaside and eat some tasty food at Food for friends.

Having arrived into Brighton just before 1pm there was only time for a brief walk around before it was time for FOOD!  When I first went to food for friends many years ago it was a self service veggie/vegan cafe with a chilled out, grab a table vibe.  These days, after the renovation it is now a veggie/vegan restaurant with waiters.

Drinks – home made lemonade, blueberry and pomegranate juice and an organic elderflower water.

Lunch cost £40 plus service  which was very friendly.  The menu changes regularly so you can phone in advance to find out the vegan options. 

Dessert

  • Chocolate cheese cake from Infinity food cafe £2.50 take away

There is a new fair trade shop, B Cause in Brighton, on Sydney Street.  It has only been open 8 months and has some lovely bags, t-shirts and jewellery.
